The announcement states:

We regret to inform you that, in view of the crippling COVID-19 pandemic, and after consultation and agreement with the host, Kenya Airports Authority, ACI Africa has decided to postpone the Conference and Exhibition of Mombasa, Kenya, initially rescheduled for March this year, to March 2022.

On the other hand, at this point in time, the ACI Africa Conference and Exhibition of Marrakech, Morocco, rescheduled for October 2021, is maintained.

If you have already paid for the registration fee of the ACI Africa conference in Mombasa last year, the corresponding fee will be transferred either to the Marrakech conference this year or the Mombasa conference next year. Kindly inform Mrs. Nezha Karbal ( [email protected] ), Manager Events of ACI Africa of your position on this issue.

We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may have caused, which is beyond our control.

We will keep you informed of any new information regarding these events.

The Airports Council International was established in 1991 and represents airports interests with governments and international organizations such as ICAO; develops standards, policies, and recommended practices for airports; and provides information and training opportunities to raise standards around the world.
